This is a very special book. It is gentle, warm and inviting, drawing us in with its intriguing premise. We see the boy’s best friend water his flowers and realize he has lost a petal; soon the boy has lost all his flowers. Choose this selection to witness the endearing conclusion. A great choice for conversations on supporting friends struggling with any challenge, including expressing non-conforming gender preferences, making a gender transition or fitting into social norms in any other way. Beautiful and heart rending.
